Obama's War

Dave Kilcullen, Ahmed Rashid, Craig Mullaney and noted Afghanistan expert Robert Greenwald discuss the war in Afghanistan on NPR. (Honestly, I have no idea why NPR keeps booking this far-left filmmaker to discuss Afghanistan alongside people who actually know what they're talking about. "Balance," I guess, but goodness, at least get someone who is a credible expert on either Afghanistan or U.S. strategy. Find a good realist like Bacevich or Posen to talk about Afghanistan if you're looking for a critic. Mitch just wrote in from Beirut that "maybe they needed help with the ties between the Taliban, Natalie Cole, and Tom Delay." I mean, my goodness, this guy just talks nonsense.)
